Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Please stop inappropriate hijacking

Gentlemen:


Could you guys not wipe out "serious" threads with personal conversations? Seems like several of the same folks who yearn for more substance on the board forget and start up personal threads that no one else really wants to read. Digressing into healthy debate or related subtopics is one thing, but the "How are you, little brother" followed by a dozen call and responses does kill the thread.



I notice that Dancinbears and others simply type the name of s/he with whom s/he wishes to converse. Then we know the thread is of a personal nature. And it has not intruded on anything else.

I realize that some threads may seem silly and/or pointless, but someone has started them for a reason. I also realize how easy it is to hijack a thread without realizing it--one personal message leads to another and so on.

Nothing wrong with a humorous aside or a stray comment, but PLEASE start your personal conversations in a separate thread.

And I promise not to hijack your threads with something serious! :)

Fishhead: Interesting to note your well thought out critique of this thread, considering you have never started one yourself. Nor are you apparently thought well of in these parts:

" this guy doesn't even speak well enough to be a troll or flamer. Can you guys ban him from your groks or something. All he has is little one liners and responses. Sounds like he needs an ass kicking. I bet he'll respond to this and prove he is an asshole. Watch."

Seems like most of your posts are irrelevant at best, annoying at worst. Oh, well. Go fish.

The obnoxious hijacking underscores the issues on this board--lack of substance, inability to get along, and, frankly, that this is a free for all space. Funny how the very same folks get all uppity five minutes later why sybil posts or someone pisses on their parade.

I guess if that is the way forumites wish things to be, then it is not my place to dare dissent or post a request to my alleged "brothers" to stop doing something that bugs me.

Best solution: if I can't stand the heat, get out of the bitchin'. Why even bother? I know: lighten up, at least 'til someone loses his temper and we get into another flame war.

Seriously, Fish, try to come up with one original thought, okay? Oh--and smi2le!

Meanwhile: sorry I interrupted your hijack.

Ghost you must realise that you're directing your energies inappropriately here. People aren't going to take very kindly to someone coming along and in all poe-faced sincerity telling them to take their hands out of their pockets, sit up straight and stop yacking in the back of the class. It's really quite easy to zip through the chatty stuff you don't want to read and get to the meaty bits you do want. And hey, you're not been above the odd fruity interjection yourself when the spirit has so moved you.

This isn't a debating society, it's a raving smorgasbord of dreamers, lunatics and misfits, of the inarticulate rant and the carefully-honed missive, of the good, the bad and the asshole, of generosity unbounded and tight-lipped narrow-mindedness. And you just have to take it as it comes.

rob--I love those fruity interjections as much as the next person--reading and writing them--but I feel that sometimes a thread is completely wiped by the sudden private conversations that take over. I take no offense at said conversations. The bug up my butt is that I come on first and formost for the dead threads (and related) and second for the howdy how's your day going threads. These are two distinct things--why not keep them separate so that one does not kill the other? I was genuinely interested in what folks wanted to see Rhino put out--considering all the talk about disappointment over FTV3--and I got next to nothing because the thread--a word that seems to imply an uninterrupted continuity with a purpose--was cut off at the knees by a personal conversation: an anti thread that could just as easily be posted separately.

Doesn't seem like much to ask. And, I submit, Sir Smithy, that you (very rightfully) are quick to get indignant about certain posts that detract from certain threads!

But I concede the point. "It's got no signs, no dividing lines, and very few rules to guide."

I guess that if threads are to be cut off at the neck, then we should also be more tolerant of multiposters, geeks, spammers, whammers, and slammers.

As noted, the best solution to my problem is not to start any threads. I'll just hang out and hijack everyone else's!

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: on topic - a hijack no more!

Ghost - I'm in agreement with you. I like to have the pointers to the GD gems polished and gleaming in the archive that I'd probably never discover by myself (though I still can't be bothered with "top five Me and My Uncle" lists). But I do like the "Hi, hello, how are ya!" stuff too that arises spontaneously. It gives me a warm glow. And that's the thing - spontaneity. It wouldn't happen if people were rushing off to start new chat-threads. You know someone is talking to you because you get one of those 'someone has responded to your post' emails. You wouldn't necessarily see that a new thread had started up.

But as for being 'more tolerant of multiposters, geeks, spammers, whammers, and slammers' = no, sir. There I draw the line.

I believe that John Winston Ono-Lennon once wrote, "Yeah, yeah, yeah"--though the context was no doubt different.

It is nice to say hello. My simpleminded point is that if you were teaching a class and a student chimed in "Hey, how are you little brother," and the class got lost in salutations and
non sequitors--whew.

It's when a good thread--or potentially good thread--gets sacrificed that I feel something is lost.

Look at some of the hihjacked threads and see how long the hijacking goes on and on.

Now, before you take me behind the woodshed, there are threads that merit hijacking (hostile threads or threads that are clearly done), and then there are times when ya just gotta bust loose.

But ask yourself--is this the time and place? I'm nor talking decorum forum--god knows that would suck pigs' balls. Just once in a while . . . .

Ah, fuck it :)

And my simple point, Magister Ghost, is simply that class was dismissed hereabouts a long time ago. It really doesn't do to get too precious about your threadheads - the Fates weave them as they will and no man knows when Atropos will make her fatal cut.


But truly, as you so sagely put it:

I can learn to resist
Anything but temptation
I can learn to co-exist
With anything but pain

I can learn to compromise
Anything but my desires
I can learn to get along
With all the things I cant explain

I can learn to resist
Anything but frustration
I can learn to persist
With anything but aiming low

I can learn to close my eyes
To anything but injustice
I can learn to get along
With all the things I dont know

You can surrender
Without a prayer
But never really pray
without surrender

You can fight
Without ever winning
But never ever win
Without a fight

You are absolutely right. You are a much better man than I am. Better, smarter, wiser, more likable, bigger, and so on. It's the size thing in particular that forces me to bow out of this absurd pissing contest.

You win, fins down. You de man. El hombre. Senior cajones. The heart and soul of the world. And I, I am an errand boy sent by grocery clerks to collect a debt. A sham, a poser, the original nowhere man.

I am sorry that I have fouled your air, wasted your time, doubted you, annoyed you, cast aspersions at you. How awful of me.

You are truly the kingfish. And I am the pig who wallows in his own miserable shit.

I am particularly sorry that I made you so angry. I should have simply smiled and moved on when you tossed the first barb. Silly, immature me. As always. I should have quit while I was ahead--and never have been so foolish as to respond to your clever post. Whew. Learned my lesson!

Yes, I am the biggest asshole here; I confess. And I am not worthy of your sharp and witty responses. I should know better than to match wits with you, of scaly one.

I am sorry for existing. I am sorry for ever having posted here. I am especially sorry for any sins I or anyone else has ever committed.

And, yes, I will never live down my infamous post. All of your negativity could never match the horrible thing I did that day. Such a crime. I should have been asked to leave.
Why didn't you tell me then that I would never find forgiveness in your heart--or, clearly, anyone else's?

What a fool I have been, thinking that all those posts and reposts and threads I have been involved in were really hostile spears aimed at the core of my very soul.

I didn't realize that I was so universally hated; but I thank you for clearing that up.

You have become my teacher, my master, my avatar, my God.

I weep: for I will never be able to call you friend as so many others do. And I so wish I could be like you and be liked by you.

You ask me to drop the leash; but it is I who am your dog, sir.

I am nothing. I am worthless, meaningless. having realized this, I will go on ebay, buy a gun, and shoot myself.

I should never have shown my sad little face around here again. I should never have shown up in the first place.

I should go and join another forum. I will worship another band.

I will run away from here.


Goodbye cruel board.

I have learned my lesson and will never, ever doubt your might, your intelligence, your honor, your sincerity, your greatness again.

I am but a trickle of spit that rolls poorly of the tongue of an ant. I am wormshit; dirt that has been swallowed, digested, and excreted our of the slimy rectum of a squiggly
creature, and which serves only to fertilize things higher up in the order. And, to add insult to insult, the very creature that forms me is your food; that really puts me at the lowest rung to your highest.

My head is so empty that it is lighter than fly shit, which flies can leave on the ceiling.

Please don't hurt me. You have done enough to put me in my place as it is.

Please: I beg you. Please.

Pretty please?

Just this once?

Okay?

Sniffle.

A touch too much melodramatic self-flagellation, GOP (but I deny you not your pleasures being as liberal-minded as the next haggis-munching, whisky-swilling, bandy-legged Pict) and possibly, just possibly, aimed a wee bit too high to hit your designated target smack between those cold, unblinking eyes.

Still, I enjoyed it myself.

Lighten up man, that is some decent strumming you got there. As far as I am concerned everyone is an asshole in their own unique way. Embrace it. Be one with the anus.

ghost,

what? your pc doesn’t have scroll? i’m a little late to this grate debate, but felt obliged to echo what flow said – the only rule in our little fight club is NO rules! it’s the way it’s always been ‘round here.
on tour, it was always such a delight to bump into someone you cared about, but didn’t get the chance to speak with as often as you’d like. same out here! i don’t think of strangers stopping strangers just to shake there hands as such a bad thing. i’m glad the grateful dead didn’t play by your house rules or playin' in the band would have remained a four minute march. oh, and to bring it all back home, if rhino was in the business of granting wishes i would STILL vote for them to mop ‘n glow 11-13-72.

just a difference in opinion i suppose.

ian

I already gave up the ghost on that one, as it were.

I guess the thing I have realized is that nothing here should or needs be taken seriously, starting with myself.

Sometimes the hijackings are better than the thread.

Sometimes folks will jack it all the way off.

Sometimes there is trouble.

No, my computer has no scroll. Where can I download one? Shnflac?

and... sometimes the posts that we hijack are just songs of our own.

i'm pretty sure you can download a scroll at Shnflac, but you'll still have to convert it with shorten.

later gator.

That's the problem. I keep getting those two second gaps between posts, so I can never be sure if they've been hijacked or I have.

GOP, you know how I hold your input here in the highest regard, but I must disagree with you on this one. While I do find the sometimes excessive hijaking that happens to some, well all to be honest, threads, I have accepted that it come with the territory. While not a regular on many bulletin boards, the ones I have seen all seem to exhibit the same type of meandering from the initial topic, maybe not to the same extent, but doing so nonetheless. I know which of the posters here regularly contribute meaningful information and tend to go right to their input, but also realizing that the farther down the thread I get, the less topically relevant the discussion becomes. But, to each his own, but I really feel that imposing any "guidelines" on how posters can or cannot express themselves kind of defeats the purpose of this place and we just need to "Cry Havok, and let fly the dogs of war". OK, maybe not that bad, but I'm afraid we'll just have to live with the hijaking and work around it to find the true nuggets of information, which I see as a fair exchange for what the place has become.
Peace to you, my friend.

I, er, that is, uh, seem to, well, ummm, get the impression, that is, uh, that I am clearly wrong and I duly accept the comeuppance for my uppity suggestion, even if it comes from such scrofulous prehensile trogledytes as yourself.

I must confess that this is the best nonsensical, vitriolic, convoluted, misguided, name changed thread I've seen in some time.

I'm very proud of myself.

My work here is done.

As noted, I promise to do my best in the future to hijack more threads than an Al Queda stewardess.

Oh, the humanity.

No hijacking here man.

My personal top 5 releases are:
1. As you have listed in this spot also---MORE EUROPE '72!!! Here's a perfect way to kinda-sorta make up for LMA DL'ing fiasco. As you stated there are a few shows still here, but they're pretty awful AUD recordings. Yea, there are plenty of boards out there to be had by trading or @ torrents, BUT, I'd love to have COMPLETE shows on officially released disks. I don't know that I could chose one specific show, so maybe they could just start with the 1st show on the tour---Wembley 4/7/72. Or, maybe 4/8 & 4/11 as well, so the first run in England is there in it's entirety.

2. I really like the Legion Stadium shows from 12/26 to 12/28, 19 & 70. The Easy Wind & Till The Morning Comes on the 26th are a couple of may fav GD moments.

3. The now-you-see-it-now-you-don't Winterland '73 Box set. Well---just because it's Winterland in 1973. That's reason enough I think.

4. How about the Winterland run in February '74? Same reasoning---just because it's Winterland & it's 1974.

5. Well, now here's a problem. Do I stick with pre-Brent years, which I prefer, or maybe something from '80, '82 or '85? I'll do this...

5a) one of the France shows from Sept '74. I don't think it matters which one.
5b) a Frost or Greek Theatre show from '85. Again, I don't think it matters which one.

Another rant on MY preference for how Rhino/GDP releases shows. DO NOT release only highlights when the whole show is in the vault. While there are shows where not everything is available from the performance, release ALL THAT IS RELEASE-ABLE from a particular show, and maybe the 5-6 songs or if only 1st or 2nd sets that are in vault for xx/xx/xx, as one official release. Just no more compilations is all I want. Again, this is just how I would do it.
